Using handles with C++

As described in the embedding manual we are trying to pass generic C++ 
data to ECLiPSe. We are facing two problems:

1. The struct type (t_ext_type) for setting up a proper method table is 
differently defined (in types.h and eclipse_cc.h) from what is said in 
the manual. As far as we can see, it is for pure C programming (using 
pword instead of EC_word..).

2. After getting a handle we'd like to store it somewhere in eclipse for 
further accessing the data. We are able to obtain a handle and xget some 
data. But when trying to save this handle (e.g. assert( 
myHandle(Hbound)) ) and recalling it (myHandle(Hyet_unbound)), we 
immediately receive a segmentation violation.

Can anybody help us with these issues? We'd be very happy.
Thanks in advance
Christian Fritz

ps: we are using Eclipse 5.5 on Linux (RedHat 8)
